Default Setup does not run on cdrw or dvd drive

Setup does not run on cdrw or dvd drive
Hi guys ..

I really need help here. I have a cdr that contains a program and each time I try to run the setup it gives a message saying :"setup will run off cd drive only" and stops the installation. I have tried to detect the protection type but that was fruitless since these program don't find any protection. I have tried this cd on LG dvd drive and LG crw drive. I have also created an image and mount it with deamon tools and changed the virtual cd drive model to cd-rom instead of dvd-rom but that didn't work. I there something i can do ??

Thanx a lot for you help

Hey I have had some problems with this in the past too What you can try is.
1. Create a Newfolder on your desktop
2. Right click on your cd drive and click explore
3. Copy ALL of the files from the cd to the new folder
4. Run the installation off of there.
5. Keep the cd in your cd/dvd drive just in case if the program needs it to run.
6. Good Luck and Enjoy.
